UC(sA, sB, E) > uC(sA, sB, O) for any strategy of ﬁrm A, sA, and ﬁrm B, sB, 32 > 30, 27 > 24, 24 > 14 and 50 > 32 in the pairwise payoff comparisons depicted in Fig. 24 This allows us to delete the right-hand side matrix (corresponding to ﬁrm C choosing to stay out) since it is strictly dominated and thus would not be selected by ﬁrm C. We can, hence, focus on the left-hand matrix alone (where ﬁrm C chooses to enter), which we reproduce in Fig. 25.

Hence, the psNE is given by: È É psNE ¼ r1Ã ¼ 4; r2Ã ¼ 4 Part (b) Both best response functions originate at 3 and increase with a positive slope of 1/4, as depicted in Fig. 12. Intuitively, countries’ strategies are strategic complements, since an increase in r2 induces Country 1 to strategically increase its own level of recycling, r1, by 1/4. Part (c) A reduction in the beneﬁts from recycling produces a fall in the intercept of one of the countries’ average beneﬁt function, for example in Country 2.
The payoff from selecting X is 2mx À m2x þ 3 Hence, a player selects strategy X if and only if his payoff from selecting X is weakly higher than from choosing Y, that is 4 À ðn À mx Þ ! 2mx À m2x þ 3 Solving for mx , yields that the number of players selecting strategy X is pﬃﬃﬃﬃﬃﬃﬃﬃﬃﬃﬃﬃﬃﬃﬃﬃﬃﬃﬃﬃﬃﬃﬃﬃﬃﬃ À3Ç 9À4ðÀ1ÞðÀ1 þ nÞ . For instance, in the case of n = 5 players, the above mx ¼ À2 expression becomes mx ¼ 2:56 players, which implies that three players select X. ) For illustration purposes, Fig.
